Green car convoy visits Vail Thursday

VAIL, Colorado “-The first statewide green car convoy will be making a stop in Vail Thursday afternoon.

The convoy, consisting of more than a dozen fuel-efficient, hybrid, ethanol-powered and clean diesel cars will leave from Denver Wednesday en route to a four-day, 14-city tour.

The convoy will be at the Safeway parking lot in West Vail from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

“We encourage everyone to come out and see us when we roll into town,” Tim Jackson, president of the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association, said. “This will be a great opportunity to ask questions, touch and feel the newest “green” cars and even kick the tires, so to speak.”

The last stop will be in Montrose on March 29.
